Jefferson City High School Reviews
In the 2 years that I've been enrolled in Jefferson City High School, I have seen many opportunities for students like myself and incoming students. This school offers many resources, programs, guidance for students who are in need (financially), disabled, in the minority, LBGTQ, pregnant, academically poor, and many more! Teachers and staff show that they really care about our future. Although some sports may lack achievements, they really work hard in what they do. I really like this school and I would definitely recommend this school for elementary school and middle school students.
This school is a great school. Teachers are caring and offer tutoring after and before school. Like most schools, you do have that 15% of teachers that are just waiting for retirement age or those who take too much time off to teach the way that is needed to reach all levels of students. The administration is also good but some take authority to their head. What I love the most about my school is they offer a alternative school for students with depression, social issues, drug problems to go to so they can receive one on one teaching and small class sizes. This extra school helps everyone because these students that do not want to learn are separated from those student that do want to learn. My school was overpopulated but this will all change in 2020 when a new second high school will be built and future students will be separated into 3 schools and of course when class size is reduced this benefits everyone.
This school is nothing but average. They constantly try new projects (academies, iPads, #jaysread), taking up our class time to explain them, then drop them without warning. This year, massive renovations are being made all over the school, which results in constant detours, drills so loud we can't hear our teachers, and classrooms that change every few months. JCHS is just "fine."
